Airbus Shopfloor Challenge at ICRA 2016

9.15am Thursday 18 February 2016

The Airbus Shopfloor Challenge invites top robotics teams from around the world to compete live at the 2016 International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) taking place in Stockholm, Sweden, between 16 - 21 May 2016. The winning Airbus Shopfloor Challenge team will receive a cash prize, and selected teams may be invited to develop their idea for commercial application within Airbus. The competition to find the highly skilled robotics teams to compete in the Airbus Shopfloor Challenge is now open for registration.

Teams competing in the Airbus Shopfloor Challenge must design and build an advanced lightweight robotic system able to perform accurate point-based assembly process operations such as drilling, tightening and measurement.

The platform will manage manual operator tasks, i.e. operations which are human designed. The task will be performed on a fuselage panel, made to represent the accessibility issues that workers face.
